I have heard a lot of people say that. But, honestly I like it better with him. I think he allows you to split Wood/Prior and go with Prior, Maddux, Wood, Clement, Zambrano. Thus breaking up the power pitchers a bit. More than if you throw Mitre or Cruz in the mix.
I look forward to all the meetings between the two teams this year. I think the bullpens matchup well also. Hawkins was a huge signing in the Cubs favor to me. But Lidge/Dotel are an awesome combo. But Farnsworth, Remlinger, Hawkins and Borowski look better than their pen to me.
What I think the Clemens move does is force Jockety's hand a little and I look for the Cards to make the last push for Maddux.
